Indianapolis Commercial and Industrial Radon Testing

Indoor radon gas is a national health problem. The EPA estimates 21,000 deaths a year from lung cancer are also radon-related. Approximately six million U.S. homes are projected to have radon concentrations above the EPA guidelines of 4 pCi/L. In addition to residential properties, some commercial properties should be tested for elevated radon levels and properly mitigated if radon levels exceed the limit of 4 pCi/L. Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas in rocks and soils underneath structures, tasteless, odorless, and colorless. The radon migrates through the soil and into a structure through cracks in the foundation, water wells, sump pits, and outside pressures. Aegis Environmental is certified in radon testing and offers the following services:

  • Pre-purchase inspections
  • Pre-listing inspections
  • Mitigation oversight
  • Clearance testing

FAQs For Commercial Radon Testing & Investigation

I need a radon investigation done for a property I manage/own. Can you help me out?
Our team has years of experience and professional certification through state and a National Radon Proficiency Program in the following related areas: pre-listing inspections, mitigation oversight, and post-mitigation testing.

What is radon, and how does it become a problem?
Radon is a radioactive gas that is undetectable by sight or smell. When uranium, thorium, or radium in soil or groundwater breaks down, radon naturally forms. The radon migrates through the soil and into a structure through cracks in the foundation, water wells, and sump pits.

How many units do I need to test?
The Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires that at least 25% of randomly selected ground level units be tested for radon, while the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists – American National Standards Institute (AARST‐ANSI) protocol for Measurements in Multifamily Buildings (MAMF) requires that 100% of the ground-level units, including office space to be tested, and at least ten% of dwellings on upper floors. Lenders or stakeholders may have specific requirements. Stakeholders should discuss the ramifications of limited testing for any building they consider purchasing or funding.

How long will it take for the testing?
Short-term radon tests take from 48 to 96 hours. Reports are generally available within a couple of days after testing completion.

What is the cost of radon investigation?
The cost will vary depending upon the number of units tested.

We had a fantastic experience with Aegis all along. They were prompt answering and scheduling us for an inspection. Jonathan Hoover came to check our basement for asbestos. He was very knowledgeable and took the time to kindly answer our many questions. It was so reassuring to work with someone so professional, patient, and so accommodating! I would absolutely recommend working with Aegis and won't hesitate hiring their services again in the future.

Mya was my technician and was quick and easy to work with. Their prices are higher then the others but to me it was worth it since they kept their promise time to get results. This made things much easier for me since I was waiting for these results for my mortgage. Thanks Aegis!

Fantastic company to work with. I'm under contract to buy a home and an underground storage tank was discovered by my home inspector. After a call with Aegis, they were able to get out to the property quickly to assess the problem. Turns out, there are FOUR underground storage tanks present since the property is multi-family. They have been very thorough, professional, and communicative to work with so far. I highly recommend working with them for any/all of your environmental remediation/cleanup needs.
